Walk in the magic light

By lucinka
Middle East >> Yemen >> East >> Hadramawt >> Shibam

This photo was taken in Yemen in Unesco site Ė Shibam, one of the most amazing places Iíve seen.

Weíve been wondering around and just before sunset Iíve noticed warm sun rays shining through sand flying in the air. I only needed suitable point of interest to make this photo work, luckily I didnít have to wait long for this man to appear.

No filter was used on this shot and those warm deep colors are created by a sun that was just about to set down.
